"Have you ever felt pressured to read something because ‘everyone else’ was reading it? Have you ever given in and read the book(s) in question or do you resist? If you are a reviewer, etc, do you feel it’s your duty to keep up on current trends?"
Just in the picture above I see a couple of books that I read because of the "pressure". The need to read what others are reading.
The Friday Night Knitting Club
Confessions of a Shopaholic
Eat, Pray, Love
I usually read them to see what all the fuss is all about. It is a book. Hard to say no to reading a new book.It's usually a lot easier for me to avoid movies than books when it comes to this.
